last year, I planted the sprouted russets from my fridge in
August.  Around December (just before the ground froze), I
pulled up 3 1" potatoes.  

YMMV

From the west coast of Canada, where, in Delta, B.C., a suburb of Vancouver,
the best fish & chips in north america have been served at Ocean Ave
Restaurant for about 20 years now.

All fish cooked by the same man for all this time...perfection, a once in a
lifetime experience.

Great camping in these here parts too eh?

Georgeous sunset tonight; in our neighbourhood, today was the warmest march
6 in living memory.

A most deligtful winter, exceptionally unusually dry and mild.  My blueberry
plants have a million buds each, portending a fine crop!
